Late-breaking Abstract Submissions - Closed

AABB is accepting late-breaking abstract submissions from July 10-31, 2020 to provide an important platform to present research where the results may not have been available during the general submission period.


Please review the AABB Late-breaking Abstract Guidelines, which include these highlights:

  • While it is expected that many late-breaking abstracts will reflect the latest research related to COVID-19, we encourage submissions on all topics.
  • During these unique circumstances, AABB is allowing COVID-19-related abstracts that were submitted during the general abstract submission period to be resubmitted as late-breaking abstracts if the data and research have been expanded since the original submission.
  • Late breaking abstract submitters will be asked to explain why their abstract was not submitted by the general submission deadline (May 15, 2020).
  • Abstracts that have been published, presented, or accepted for publication or presentation prior to July 31 will not be considered.
  • No more than six abstracts will be accepted for the late-breaking abstract oral session during the AABB 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting.
  • Accepted abstracts will be published online in TRANSFUSION journal.
  • The standard abstract fee of $25 will be waived during the submission process.
